Located on a vast 280 acre farm in the town of Pennsylvania this modern farmhouse blends simplicity of design with comfort energy-efficiency and smart architecture that responds to the specific needs of the site. Passive solar heating and cooling techniques play a major part in shaping the family home as rolling sunshades and screens were used to shape the chic white residence.
Overlooking the park outside and disconnecting with the landscape when necessary the house offers best of both worlds. A curated art collection and comfy modern décor complete this Kansas City home where life feels breezy and beautiful!
A series of succulents and air plants add to the green goodness here and it is flooding and sliding glass doors that ensure light passes freely from one room to another. The two-story building with curved wooden roof also captures warmth during winter months while a void inside the structure allows for passage of cool breeze on hot days.
As one flips through some of the best lofts and apartments in Vancouver it is industrial style that undoubtedly holds sway. But this lovely condo on moves away from the modern industrial craze and adopts a refined Scandinavian style.
Creating a hub of green amidst the urban jungle around it it is the private courtyard of the house that ends up being the showstopper. A 375 square foot rooftop garden complements the lush green courtyard below beautifully even as deciduous trees provide plenty of shade during hot summer days.
